    My Problem

    My problem with self esteem is that I don't have any. None - Zilch. I feel like I am worth nothing. I look hideous, repulsive and any other derogatory words you wanna throw in there. I do get little bout of self confidence but it's never long until someone knocks that out of me...

    I'm really self conscious

    when it comes to what I say and do. I'm still mentally kicking myself for things I said when I was six. My worst problem is when I say things and realize nobody cares. Something I've been thinking about is a couple of years ago when I switched to a new school. The teacher was...
